KEY STRENGTHS

Big, showy plant with flashy yields! National placement with above average disease tolerance package. Big, girthy ears are eye-catching! Great silage potential, as well.

WEAKNESSES

Average tolerance to common rust.

POSITIONING

National placement line that fits on all soil types. Loves irrigation and works in dryland situations, as well. Push fertility levels as this hybrid responds well to added nutrition and flexes especially for girth. Foliar fungicide use is advised in areas where common rust and other diseases are normally present.

AGRONOMIC & DISEASE RATINGS

The higher the number, the better the performance or rating.

I enjoy working with Hefty Seed Company – Princeton because they make it easy to switch to an earlier hybrid. Not only did they have the maturity I wanted, but they also had my seed size. Hefty Brand 5624 Corn even yielded 20 bushels better than I expected for 2019!

I was pleased with Hefty 5624 as a short-season hybrid in our area.

All my Hefty Corn did well, including Hefty 5624. I love the Hefty Complete package.
